The story unfolds through the eyes and words of reporter Sonny Long, who covered the murders since day one. He tells the tale through his own experiences, through the voices of those closest to the victims and the suspect and through media reports of the case. Along the way a cast of characters emerge, some good, some bad, some even bizarre. By his own admission, Hailey spent the day before, Super Bowl Sunday, snorting cocaine, smoking marijuana, and drinking. Two months later Hailey, the son of a local deputy sheriff, was arrested and charged with strangling the mother, wrapping a telephone cord around the neck of the oldest daughter, and drowning the baby in the bathtub.
Journalist Sonny Long has followed the case since the day the bodies were found. He has also corresponded with Hailey with the convicted murderer proclaiming his innocence despite the plea agreement.

Thought this sounded good but gave up a chapter or two in as it jumps about all over the place and seems to be a collection of old articles all cobbled together. It harks back to drug problems in the area at the time and reprints whole articles about that. I wasn't interested in knowing about all that but about the murders and why they happened and the order in which things happened.
I am usually not a fan of the "true crime" genre, but this event rocked the small little where I grew up when I was a teenager, so I found the subject matter far too compelling to pass up.
The People of Among Murderers and Madness
I hoped the book would expose some never before seen details about the crime or those involved, but a majority of the book is a collection of previously published newspaper and magazine articles. Ultimately, I think it's a must read for anyone who lived in Atlanta, Texas, at the time, but those outside Cass Co I am usually not a fan of the "true crime" genre, but this event rocked the small little where I grew up when I was a teenager, so I found the subject matter far too compelling to pass up.
Ultimately, I think it's a must read for anyone who lived in Atlanta, Texas, at the time, but those outside Cass County will probably have little interest. Oct 03, Nicole added it.

When I told a friend I was writing about the Croydon cat killer , as he or a copycat appears to be holidaying in Washington State , her lips collapsed into a little moue, and then she looked away. And it encourages obsession: It pricks at ancient anxieties. In midcentury America, the suburbs were seen by some as a dangerous social experiment — this style of living brought sickness. Suburban men fell ill from the stress of commuting; suburban women, trapped at home, had it even worse.
The place of suburbs in our collective psyche has been on my mind recently, as last year, with great internal drama, I moved out of the city, got a cat for my daughter — pets, of course, traditionally being tools for children to practice grief upon — and settled all the way down. In Britain the idea of suburbia has none of the David Lynchian perversion or drama of the United States.
Suffocating, but safe. Until a predator shatters the illusion. The first deaths happened in a place called Croydon.
